Yuvraj six sixes

There have been a few records set at the ongoing ICC World Twenty20 championships but one of the most impressive I think is Yuvraj Singh's record of being the first player to score six sixes in just one over in international Twenty20 cricket.

Yuvraj scored the six sixes under the bowling of Stuart Broad as England went on to lose that match by 18 runs. It is not surprising therefore that Yuvraj reached his half-century off just 12 balls.

Because this is a new format of cricket there have been a few records set as a result. Brett Lee claimed the first international Twenty20 hat-trick to help restrict Bangladesh to just 123 runs. Lee took the wickets of Shakib Al Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza and Alok Kapali to clinch the hat-trick.

The other record worth noting is the highest Twenty20 innings total achieved by Sri Lanka when they made 260-6 when they beat Kenya in the group stages.

Lets hope to see more records broken as the tournament reaches the semi-final stage.

...its a good form of cricket for some of us who can not wait and have the patience to see the grass grow (Test cricket), because the overs are fewer, you make a mistake you are gone and somehow levels the competition out there. They should be more Twenty20 matches than the other versions, watching two teams playing one another weeks and weeks with no end. It gives others a chance thats why the bigger nations are complaining its not proper cricket. Easier to watch....

What I have liked about this tournament is that you can watch up to three matches featuring six differing teams in one day. Also the tournament itself is not very long, compare to the cricket world cup that forever to finish.
